Chris Buckley - Chair of Management Committee
I have been the chair of Project 6's management committee since 2009 and I've been on the committee for over 5 years. I am the manager of an NHS community mental health team based in Bradford, we work with older people and their carers who are experiencing mental health problems.
I have worked in a variety of mental health services both community and hospital based as I am a psychiatric nurse specialising in working with mental health and substance related problems. I am also an NVQ assessor (Health & Social Care) and an experienced lecturer and trainer.
I first visited Project 6 over ten years ago as a student nurse. At that time it was a small project with a needle exchange offering harm reduction advice. The growth and development of the organisation since then is fantastic and a real reflection of the hard work of the superb clinical staff, ongoing support from a wide group of commissioners and the dedication of the management team.
